Opportunities are endless.

But opportunities like this one are heart-wrenching. One of the biggest problems with pitching your ideas to publications is rejection.

Sincerely, rejection hurts — not everyone has the guts to accept rejection. People easily give up after encountering their first rejection. While some may give up trying after a couple of rejections.

What even pains the most is that you’ve put in the energy to develop your pitch and still receive a rejection after hoping for the positive feedback.

It’s normal for us to hope for a positive result in cases like this. However, we should also keep in mind that rejection is always standing at your doorstep. That’s why it’s important for us t learn how to cope with rejection.

And the best way to learn how to cope with ejection is to first acknowledge that rejection is a good thing. Because it challenges you to become better at what you do. So when a publication rejects your craft, then is either one of these reasons:

  • You didn’t read through their guidelines to understand what they seek.
  • The idea you pitched has already been covered.
  • Your pitch is not well crafted.
  • They have close the doors to receiving new ideas.
  • Your idea didn't fit into their categories.
  • You didn't match their style and tone of writing.

There are a good number of reasons that may trigger rejection. Nonetheless, you should always figure out why you’re rejected and try again.

Furthermore, if you’re interested in learning how to write a short and effective pitch, you can read through the article below — use it as a head-up to developing your pitch.
